The LESS is MORE wellness series will continue at 2 p.m. Wednesday in the Celebration Center at Friendship Haven, 420 Kenyon Road, with the focus shifting to Physical Wellness. This free educational series is intended to explore each of the six dimensions of health in depth and to help seniors explore and embrace healthy aging. The programs are free and open to the public with no reservations required.

Physical wellness is only one of the six dimensions of health, the other being emotional, spiritual, intellectual, social and vocational. Each dimension is equally important and all six dimensions overlap and influence each other to create overall wellness. The LESS is MORE series is intended to explore each dimension in depth and to help people understand what healthy aging encompasses.

Josh Mason, D.C., will present "How to Stay Young for the First 100 Years." A Fort Dodge native, Mason will present information on how to avoid and prevent spinal disorders. Information on everyday nutritional needs will also be offered.

The series is a cooperative endeavor between Elderbridge Agency on Aging, Foster Grandparent Program, Friendship Haven, Iowa Central Community College, Iowa State University Extension, and Trinity Healthy Living - Health Partners at TRMC. For additional information, contact any of the sponsors.
